As Penrith Selective High School’s latest innovation to the leadership structure at our school, Multimedia aims to enhance our school’s public profile through branding and promotion. We are focused on providing a leadership opportunity for students who wish to improve and contribute to our school from a more practical and behind the scenes perspective. Consisting of twenty-one members ranging from Year 10 to 12, Multimedia is an extensive group of talented students who work diligently for our school. Although we are focused on working outside of public view, our impact in the marketing and branding of our school become inextricably linked with our team as a whole.
The Multimedia Team is split up into four groups of different specialisations including: photography and videography, sound design, graphic design, and post-production editing. Each group is managed by one of three executive leaders who together, oversee the workflow and final output of the team as a whole.
In order to facilitate the fast-paced environment of Multimedia, we have a leadership succession plan of Year 11 and 10 transition leaders that are upskilled to meet the continuous demands of the school. These leaders work towards getting as much experience as they can while acting as an understudy of the existing senior leaders.
As a collective, the students of the Multimedia Team display their talents and work ethic whether it be through their extra-curricular contributions or class work while consistently applying diligence, citizenship, integrity and courage in all of our projects and events.
